This is former Miss Venezuela Monica Spear in 2004 when she won her crown. On Tuesday, the 29-year-old's young life came to a tragic end on a highway in central Venezuela. Spears and her partner, 39-year-old Henry Berry, were shot dead by assailants during a robbery. The couple's five-year-old daughter was shot in the leg but survived the attack, local media said. Their car had reportedly broken down before the armed robbers approached. It's a common occurrence on roads after dark in this, one of the world's most violent nations with a high homicide rate.
